The Swiss Are Not So Nice in Times Square NYE


Two Swiss sisters Silvia Braham, 22, and Isabelle Braham, 23, decided that they could do whatever they wanted on NYE. When the ball dropped they jumped on top of a police cruiser, kicked and bashed it in. “The windshield glass window was broken and cracked, and the driver-side mirror was almost completely detached and hanging from the vehicle.” Needless to say they got arrested for criminal mischief with an overseas felony charges!

The police car was parked on 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue at midnight on Monday. Two other unidentified individuals along with the Swiss  citizens “kicked and stomped the vehicle multiple times with their feet and shoes, causing damage in the roof and hood. The vehicle was severely indented and crushed,” according to court documents.

Not seeing the International incident in this Silvia angrily asked “Why are you interested in this?”to a reporter at Manhattan Criminal Court.

The Braham sisters, have been staying with family in Milford, NJ, where the older sister is here on a work visa. They allegedly racked up hundreds of dollars worth of damage and got their passports seized. They are due back in court Tuesday though already charged with felony, criminal mischief and misdemeanor rioting.

What a way to get kicked out of a country.
